"The Candy Snatchers is a totally awesome movie.There is nothing to hate in this classic exploitation.
Fantastic plot with fine one liner dialogue and a wicked black sense of humour!
The acting is way above average for a 70's low budget pic.
I was thrilled from start to finish, dare I even say that this is probably the best exploitation movie I have seen to date!
Tarantino must have seen this movie countless times, there are at least two scenes in the candy snatchers which reminded me of Kill Bill 2 and Reservoir Dogs!
Forget the ultra boring Thriller(They call her one eye) the one overhyped by Tarantino himself.
The Candy Snatchers is the way to go if you REALLY want to see a classic from an era that will undoubtly ever come again!
Although this is an exploitation movie, this movie is very light on violence and nudity, and I am glad it is!
You don't need to be extreme to make a great exploitation movie.
Well done Subversive for giving us a fantastic release.
The Candy Snatchers stands proud in my dvd collection.
Finally a decent version came out

"This is an exploitation movie, so I won't say about the movie itself.
As far as the transfer goes, the picture quality is awesome.
This will be a very pleasant surprise if you were disappointed by its bootlegs before -- for one, I didn't know this movie was supposed to show blue skies! Well, one gripe is that now the fake blood looks too fakey bright, but perhaps that's about right for a '70s camp.
Before this, all internet movie stores appeared to carry copies of basically *one* version, and it must have been a video recording of a small projection screen.
The bonus material was generous. The fact that they were able to interview the 2 actresses after 30 years is just amazing. (However, poor Susan Sennett says a few times that she just needed rent money and would rather forget having made this movie.)

"Although the theme song is a little corny, the acting is strong and the characters are sympathetic, especially Shawn Newton and Candy Phillips. A tragic ending but the movie was rife with tragic characters."
